Truck wont re-start after it has been driven and turned off

Asked by May 19, 2015 at 04:10 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck will start as many times as you want while it is still cold. Once I drive it for a while and shut it off, it will not start again until it is fully cold.

common problem on chevy starters..is the solenoid...one way to check it is to run the garden hose on it for a min.when it wont start,then try it...is the starter heat shield still there.. or first Applying/jump/or test light 12 V to the S terminal.if it doesnt turn over replace it.
